Fun with a purpose and a mission to learn and  grow

St Philip Preschool

St Philip preschool offers a warm and friendly pre-school setting. The facility is operated by St. Philip Lutheran Church and is licensed by the Michigan Department of Social Services.

The staff consists of a teacher and two assistants for each session. Maximum group size for each session is limited to 21 children ranging in ages 3 to 4 years old.

Together we will explore the world around us to help the children grow socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. We encourage self expression through communications and the arts.

Positive and supportive experiences always build confidence.
